Subject: Tale of the Blind Men
It was six men of Indostan
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind
The First approached the Elephant,
And happening to fall
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl:
"God bless me! but the Elephant
Is very like a wall!"
The Second, feeling of the tusk,
Cried, "Ho! what have we here
So very round and smooth and sharp?
To me 'tis mighty clear
This wonder of an Elephant
Is very like a spear!"
The Third approached the animal,
And happening to take
The squirming trunk within his hands,
Thus boldly up and spake:
"I see," quoth he, "the Elephant
Is very like a snake!"
The Fourth reached out an eager hand,
And felt about the knee.
"What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain," quoth he;
" 'Tis clear enough the Elephant
Is very like a tree!"
So oft in theological debate,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has actually seen!
The truth of the matter is that both sides of this interesting hmmm... review have done nothing but state some published facts that I am sure was printed in a scholarly article and therefore carries some credibility.
I haven't seen the video, but I am well read in journals and science reviews. Every study or scientific report is designed to answer specific questions that the prinicipal investigator seeks to answer. This has been referred to as self fulfilling prophecy, and unfortunately it is a part of the scientific method. When reading reports from these studies, it is easy to follow the author's logic and conclusions, but everything is based upon what the PI set out to do in the first place and that is to provide answers for what he or she does not know. It does not mean that the conclusions drawn from the reports give a clear picture of what is happening in the real world. Einstein said it best when he presented his theory of relativity by stating that any one report or scientific finding could prove him wrong and none of the related theories and findings could prove him right!
There is an enormous amount of research being done by the pharmaceutical industry to come up with something to replace their failed antimicrobial markets due to microbial mutations and recombinant genes that make the little suckers more resistent. Anyhow, the drug companies are going back now and using the very things that the homeopathic doctors and individuals used for maintaining good health and to treat disease. And the common thread between what UVB light and what is does is related to vitamin D's bioactive form known as 1,alpha 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3. And if you do a online search using the term, you will find several research articles that show how this special secosterol has been proven to cure a broad array of infectious diseases and even reverse type II diabetes, and cure cancer and not just in rats, but in human clinical studies. This has been going on since the 1930s by trained physicians who are still practicing this alternative method today.
The drug companies have already started using their high dose analog derivatives of 1,alpha 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 in various clinical trials to treat different diseases and cancers. And FDA is helping by preventing consumer access to high dose vitamins and nutritional supplements. And if you need additional information, you can go the federal registry and see for yourself. Instead of polarizing yourselves against each other, it would make more sense to use all that intellect and energy for more important matters. Try writting to your politicians and find out why the American public is being whored out to enrich the drug companies.

UV has both its advantages and its disadvantages. UV is necessary in the correct amounts for our good health. While excessive amounts have been linked to skin cancer, prescribed amounts can and do help alleviate a number of skin disorders. If you visit any major Dermatology Clinic, you will find 7' tall UV light chambers. Stop shouting at each other and learn. UV helped control and arrest my acute Psoriasis. Not the Dead Sea Mud, not the overpriced, over touted steroidal creams, not the 3000 year old herbal remedy from Wang Fat's Herbal Miracles, nope..just good old UV in doseages prescribed by a Dermatologist.
Lastlaugh your so full of it. Your info is total bs.
First off you have no idea what your talking about, ultra violet light disrupts your DNA, sometimes the DNA 'heals' in correct order, but it can also mutate into cancer. Those microbes your talking about are call viruses, they invade your cells to reproduce. A select few can possibly cause cancer, but its highly unlikely. Sun bathing does not kill them, if anything it raises your temp to a fever and turns your body into a big incubator for them.
Sun bathing also gives them a perfect path into your body when you get a sun burn. Remember they call t a sun BURN for good reason, it is a burn. Or did you think your flaking skin was heathly.
You also have no idea what ozone is, it happens to be an extremly deadly gas that can kill you in slight ammounts. Sure its great in the upper atomosphere because it shealds us from UV rays, we would fry other wise.
The Government did not distroy any UV lights, there used in all sun tan beds, the con theroy is stupid.
And just so you know every sun burn you get doubles your risk of skin cancer. So what are you 12, you just believe every thing you hear? This is the most obsired load I have heard yet.
Anyway this is a hilarious vid. show how dum we were then.

Never seen the movie but I found one of these lamps at a local estate sale last weekend. If you`d like to experience ultraviolet radiation at it`s finest let me know, sm611 sbcglobal net...

Sorry, Lastlaugh. I can smell a troll from 20 miles away.
For every movie that's on here, someone makes a statement contrary to the obvious just to cheese everyone off.
Subject: Sunkraft Ultraviolet Last Laugh
News flash: Skin cancer and ALL cancers are ultra small bacteria, folks, not " ultraviolet light". Thats a myth to keep you OUT of what CURES you and coming back for more useless drugs in your suffering. 2 Nobel prize winners both showed with a HUGE microscope the previously too-small-to-see bacteria living WITHIN cells. Ultraviolet Kills them. Redness is from the toxins in your skin when they die, and goes away as you flush them out and clean your blood as usual. All you bright lightbulbs laughing at this thing not only deserve to pay your money for your life and never see a cure, but we dont want you to buy one anyway, keep your attitudes and get sick like everyone else, poor misled slobs. Ultraviolet not only kills bacteria, but produces OZONE which FURTHER kills bacteria, nothing more than electrified OXYGEN (remember oxygen?) that thunder produces in nature. Now, I wont even talk about oxygen in our current polluted world, but I will say cancer CANNOT live in oxygen's presence.
I'll take a sunburn over remaining full of bacteria anyday. To each his own. Ahem...the AMA squashed these lamps because they DIDNT want a cure all, they wanted a medical milking institution with the whole white race of USA held hostage and kept sick. See: Dr. Royal Raymond Rife on any net search engine. Heres a good album cover for you too, regarding the sharing approach of how oxygen cures all, reserved to certain circles - pics are 1000 words they say: http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00008BXJF.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Subject: More Precious Than a Pot of Gold! (Full Film)
Made by the Sun-Kraft ultraviolet lamp company, this film tells us all about the healthful benefits of ultraviolet radiation, including sunburn, skin cancer, and the prevention of rickets. Actually, no, skin cancer wasn't mentionedÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂif that danger had been known about back in the 50s when this was made, perhaps they wouldn't have shown a baby being irradiated by her mother holding a portable UV device. Sunburn, though, is portrayed as a sign of health and that inconvenient peeling can be prevented by an application of Sun Kraft skin cream. The film's most amazing premise is the idea that poor people should all be supplied with UV lamps, because everybody knows that the primary effect of poverty is that you don't get enough sun. This film is quite appalling, but considering its subject matter, it should have been lots more appalling than it is, which makes it kind of disappointing. Still, it has a fair amount of camp value and it's quite mstable. And it contains lots of shots of people of all walks of life wearing dorky protective sunglasses, if you're looking for that.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
Subject: Medical Quackery at it's finest!
Oh my god.
This film, which trumpets the use of a new invention by Sun-Krafft that will 'use the health-giving rays of ultra-violet to you at home' is a scary SCARY little film. The first half is pretty much a scientific mumbo-jumbo about what Ultra-violet light is, and it's 'medical benefits' but the 2nd half if gonzo, with Sun-Kraft's invention of the home-use Ultraviolet ray thing which can be used to cure everything from rickets to acne! Scary scenes of people standing way too close to these machines (even with goggles on (which made me giggle) are shown. It's even explained that the reddening of the skin, or um, sunburn, has it's medicinal effects. What? What? Do I hear the words SKIN CANCER? No wonder Sun-Kraft are no longer in business.
